what temperatures do you guys commonly see on your Z1000? I have an 03 and in 80 degree weather i noticed at freeway speeds it varies around 190 and stop and go in the city it varies around 225. the highest was 234.

just curious what you guys are seeing?

My '04 in 90 degree temps will run at 182-196 and sittin' in traffic will get up to 202-216...the highest mines gotten to was 220-223, but dropped back down when moving. The fan kicks in at 214 degrees.

I have never seen above 228, usually around 216-220 on hot days here in FL. If you have seen 234 I think you may need to be concerned about a cooling issue. 230 is probably the most I would be comfortable with. You could start doing engine damage around 240.
